Dear Amber, it really intrigues me that u want 2 lose 65 lbs by the summer, but whatever it takes right? So i would suggest you eat smaller meals. If you can eat 2-3 big meals a day, that does help, but if you slowly start by eating 4-5 SMALL meals over the course of the day- it might help. I presonally eat only 2 small meals a day to maintain my weight. Exercise is a MAJOR thing if ur planning to lose weight. Pilates and aerobic exercise are the best. Pilates gets rid of that extra fat like on ur stomach and legs. Aerobic exercise is great too because it gets you all energized and hyped. Also, don't eat at night (after 6) because if you do ur body doesn't have time to burn those calories and they get stored as fat. Also eat low-fat stuff and also eat protein and try to cut the amount of carbs. You can also go on a low-calorie diet (like 1200-1500)and remember EXERCISE is the key to vital weight loss. Also running improves overall health. You may not be able to lose 65lbs by the summer, but i guarantee atleast 20. The reason i know all this stuff is cauze my mom been trying to lose weight and i've heard her lecture about stuff like this. I never needed to lose weight(108 lbs.)but if you need anymore help, you can email me at

YOU can cut down on some off your food that might help. You could run,jog,do,situps,pushups and differnt stuff.Try some taeboo and plates there both workout videosand they helped me and a lot of other people.

by this summer i dont think you will b able to loose 65lbs. not very healthly anyway! it doesnt mean you shouldnt try because you could loose some by then. do u exercise regularly? thats what will help you the most.
